Brian Lamb School of Communication Faculty

Please join me in congratulating faculty members in the Brian Lamb School of Communication for having the COM 114 and COM 217 programs recognized by the National Communication Association at its convention in Dallas. 

The NCA’s Basic Course Division honored the COM 114: Fundamentals of Speech Communication and COM 217: Science Communication courses with its Program of Distinction award. The award recognizes winning programs for the quality of their content, teaching methods, training of instructors, and course-related outcomes.

Reviewers credited Purdue’s programs for their evolution and campus partnerships, with one reviewer stating that, “the highly integrated/collaborative nature of the basic course evidenced throughout the institution is a positive for this course and our discipline.”

Congratulations, Lamb School faculty!
